The Federal Government’s commitment to deepen the Mississippi River channel and its decision to allow the exportation of crude have created many opportunities in the U.S. Gulf Coast region for private investment and development. Yet the country’s resurgence in energy production is temporarily impeded by a lack of sufficient infrastructure necessary to match supply with demand. As the glut of U.S. crude and demand for infrastructure increases, the need for industrial facilities on the Gulf Coast continues to grow. These facilities are essential to economic development along the nation’s southern energy corridor. The real estate industry’s investment in this region emphasizes the interdependence of the public and private sectors to create value.
